Forecast Options

There are several possibilities available to you for carrying out the article forecast:

Carrying Out the Individual Forecast

Carrying Out the Total Forecast

Carrying Out the Total Forecast in Background Mode

You can also carry out the article forecast from the forecast screen of the customized article master. Depending on the forecast parameters maintained here, you can carry out the forecast in simulative mode in several online steps. The functionality used for this is that of the single-item forecast for an article.

The forecast values are posted when you save the article master record. This also automatically adjusts the two RP parameters, the reorder level and the safety stock level.
